The Politics Post

I took a survey about issues related to the election, and here are my results:
  1. Your ideal theoretical candidate. (100%)
  2. Cobb, David - Green Party (90%)
  3. Brown, Walt - Socialist Party (87%)
  4. Nader, Ralph - Independent (84%)
  5. Kerry, Senator John, MA - Democrat (72%)
  6. Badnarik, Michael - Libertarian (37%)
  7. Peroutka, Michael - Constitution Party (17%)
  8. Bush, President George W. - Republican (7%)
I was actually a little surprised at how uninformed about certain issues I am. I have no opinion on trade because I just don't know anything about it. Most of my strong preferences related to education and health care. Hardly surprising.

It's also hardly surprising that my top matches were green/socialist candidates. Still, I'd never vote for any candidate who had no real chance of winning. That's idealism taken too far, in my book. I know a two-party system isn't ideal, but it's what we have to work with right now. My vote will go to Kerry. As for Nader? I wouldn't vote for that egomaniac if you bought me all the fun gadgets in the world! I love his politics, but I'm still really mad at him for paving the way for Bush to win the last election. Yes, I blame him. How could I not?

OK. That's about as political as it's going to ever get around here. I hope you enjoyed it. :D
